The Most Perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookies in the World



These are not gluten-free. However, I am working on a gluten-free recipe in my kitchen, and will post that one soon!

Oatmeal raisin cookie is Sean's most favorite cookie; he's such a wholesome guy, seriously! :-)
So, I baked him a dozen as a surprise, and I was so pleased with the result. 

These cookies turned out so ooey-gooey and chewy. So delicious!

Without further ado, I present you: the best oatmeal raisin cookies in the world.
